Shia LaBeouf inadvertently inserted himself into the rumoured drama between Olivia Wilde and Florence Pugh after he shared Wilde’s emails addressed to him to prove that he wasn’t fired from her upcoming film Don’t Worry Darling, contrary to Wilde’s claims.
LaBeouf’s expose came as he clarified that he was not ‘fired’ from Wilde’s upcoming directorial but instead quit the film after alleged differences with fellow actors.
The actor shared a video from Wilde with Variety as proof of their correspondence, in which Wilde is heard saying: “I feel like I’m not ready to give up on this yet, and I too am heartbroken and I want to figure this out.”
She then said: “You know, I think this might be a bit of a wake-up call for Miss Flo, and I want to know if you’re open to giving this a shot with me, with us.”
“If she really commits, if she really puts her mind and heart into it at this point and if you guys can make peace — and I respect your point of view, I respect hers — but if you guys can do it, what do you think? Is there hope? Will you let me know?” Wilde went on to ask LaBeouf in the clip.
LaBeouf’s email to Variety comes as Wilde promotes Don’t Worry Darling with stars Florence Pugh and Harry Styles.
